Myself and fellow challengers JamesM and MartinC are about to make the Cold War go Hot with our first Team Yankee game this weekend. You have seen my armoured forces last year and the infantry so far this year. I stuck in a an order pre Xmas for some Hind gunships from Heroics and Ros(as i could not find the ones that have been maturing in the lead pile ) and they turned up with enough time to spare before the game. So here they are.
They have had magnets inserted into the main body to attach them to flight stands. I have made two kind of flight stands both individual and multiple.
|6 Hinds - ready to make the Tommies pay!|
|Comrade Docovich - ready to take on the Capitalist wastrels.- and find some Beatles records!|
I also completed some additional hedgerow terrain pieces , made from coffee stirrers and clump foliage , all stuck together with my trusty hot glue gun.
|18 feet of hedgerows added|
|stacked up in 6x6 , it fill about a quarter so 5 points I reckon.|
|Smash the capitalists!|

Welcome back to the Challenge Comrade Docovich! Its about time too! This damn Aussie Flu has knocked me for 6 as well. Although it hasn't really affected my limited painting time, unlike you! Usually you'd be top 5 with 500+ points by now.
So the question on everyone's lips is, "Can he recover his lost Flu time and get a top 5 finish?"
I have faith in you Comrade!
Great idea using 6mm figures for this project, you get a whole lot more for your money, that's if your eye's last out until the Spring!
I do like the way you've based them up Comrade, love the see through stick thingy's, what are they and where do you get them from?
And thank you for painting up those luvverly hedgerows, they're a bit of a headache to add the points up for!
I've had a chat with the bosses and we've agreed to award your hedgerows 10 points not the 5 you suggested.
I'm also gonna go out on a limb and add an extra 3 points for the basing of the helicopters. They're that cool!
So you've a grand total of 25 points!
